An effort to think positively today

Random things I like
  • Garlic
  • Very fresh butter
  • the way grass moves in waves when blown by the wind
  • the feel of silk charmeuse
  • The Princess Bride, by Willim Goldman (referring here to the book. The movie's pretty good too, but I'm thinking of the book today)
  • pale green of new spring leaves
  • tulips
  • seeds
  • fresh sugar-snap peas
  • blue hydrangeas
  • Frances the cat, purring as she sits on my chest
  • bird tracks in the sand
  • tasty BEvERages
  • sleeping
  • bouncy, springy wool yarn
  • D'Affinois brie
  • grilled salmon
  • GOOD chocolate chip cookies
  • drinking and eating and talking on the back patio on a summer evening as the stars come out
  • fresh raspberries picked from the vine
  • bouquets of dahlias from the Farmer's market
  • candlelight
  • blueberry pie
  • Twilight Zone marathons (oh yes, so horribly cheesy and dated and slow-paced, but I like the concept of T.Z. Marathons)
  • DVD players
  • massive summer thunderstorms in the desert
  • sound that snow makes when it's falling
  • EuroRails (it's a board game)
  • Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade
  • Vineland, by Thomas Pynchon
  • the clouds scudding quickly across the sky
